Obama finds support in GOP

Interesting article today about conservatives supporting Obama, from the San Francisco Chronicle, on
    The "Obamacans" that Sen. Barack Obama used to joke about - Republican apostates who whispered their support for his candidacy - have morphed into a new phenomenon, or syndrome, as detractors like to call it: the Obamacons.

    These are conservatives who have publicly endorsed the presumptive Democratic nominee, dissidents from the brain trust of think tanks, ex-officials and policy magazines that have fueled the Republican Party since the 1960s. Scratch the surface of this elite, and one finds a profound dismay that is far more damaging to the GOP than the usual 10 percent of registered Republicans expected to switch sides during a presidential election.

Hey Rob! Great to Read your Blog. Love your political thread...well, love might be overstating just a tad, but "like moderately well enough to follow" just doesn't have the same ring.
